the Early, High and Northern Renaissance
There are three different periods within the larger movement known as the Renaissance: the Early, High and Northern Renaissance. Using a word processing program, preferably MS-Word, write a 4-5 page essay discussing the primary differences between these three movements. You need to utilize two additional sources besides your textook in this assignment. You cannot use Wikipedia as a source however. Your additional sources must come from 1) a peer reviewed journal such as the Journal of Modern History or a similar publication. These are available through the university's online library access. If you do not know how to access these, contact the school's librarian who can show you exactly how to access these materials. 2) A web source. The web source must be a .edu or .gov site. No .com or .net sites. If you find a .org site that you think might work, contact me first via email for approval.
Answer these questions in your essay:
1. What does the term Renaissance mean and how does this apply to the study of humanities?
2. Where did the Renaissance begin and why?
3. What are the differences between the three Renaissances mentioned above? Are they separate or part of one large movement?
4. Name at least one leading figure from each period and their major contribution as an example.
5. What was the impact of the Renassance(s)?
You may collaborate on this assignment by posting ideas and questions on the discussion board, but you may NOT plagiarize the work of other students.
You will need to post your essay as an attached file on the discussion board and submit a copy to my dropbox. I will not grade your assignment until I have two copies. You must also reply to a post by at least one of your classmates and provide some constructive criticism/discussion points. We learn in an online format through ongoing interaction with peers and instructors. Please do not skip this step or your grade will be docked by 25%. Keep responses constructive and tasteful, yet critical.

Here are the criteria for grading of the written assignments:
The basic criteria for grading all written essays and homework assignments is listed below:
A=Answer indicates sharp insight into course material. The student has demonstrated this by a) answering the question in its totality b) providing a clear thesis or topic sentence in response to the question c) providing excellent supporting detail to justify the topic or thesis statement d) Proper use of the English language e) Not failing to provide significant related material that may contribute to the supporting detail. An “A” answer will provide the student with 90-100% of the point value for each question asked.
B=Answer indicates a solid comprehension of the subject matter, but in a manner not as insightful or as sharp as an answer in the “A” category. The answer still provides a clear thesis or topic sentence in response to the question and supporting material to justify it. The amount of supporting or related material may not be as comprehensive as an “A” answer. English composition may be less polished than those answers in the “A” category. Students will receive 80-89% of the point value for the question asked.
C=Answer indicates marginal comprehension of the subject matter, but is done so in a way that clearly shows that the student’s preparation is barely adequate. The answer is not nearly as clear or precise in providing a topic or thesis sentence in response to the question and barely provides enough supporting detail to justify the statement. Marginal use of the English language is also typical of answers in this category as this further shows a lack of adequate preparation and/or an ability to properly synthesize the course material. Students will receive 70-79% of the point value for the question asked.
D=Answer indicates barely any subject comprehension. Thesis or topic sentences in a “D” answer are very unclear or inprecise and virtually no supporting material is provided. In some cases where supporting material is provided, it is wholly inadequate or unrelated to the question at hand. Poor use of the English language also characterizes answers in this category. Students will receive 60-69% of the point value for the question asked.
F=Answer indicates no subject comprehension, makes poor use of the English language, and provides no supporting material in relation to the topic or thesis sentence. Answers falling into this category show no real effort on the part of the student. Because this category encompasses a wide-array of problematic answers, scores can range from 0 to 59 percent. Questions not answered will automatically receive zero points as will answers that are completely wrong, e.g, answers in which the student makes an attempt but actually describes another term by mistake. This would be most likely to occur in an identification question. Students who make some attempt but just fail to indicate adequate knowledge of the question will receive anywhere from 25-59% of the point value for the question asked. Determination of this amount is wholly at the discrimination of the instructor, so students should make every attempt to be adequately prepared so as to not fall into the “F” category.
